Mil Cumbres

Travel Guide to the Mil Cumbres road

Mil Cumbres (Mexico 15 Morelia-Toluca) or One Thousand Hills in Spanish is a very scenic drive in Michoacán state. This road links Morelia, capital of Michoacán state to Hidalgo city.

This road borders on an edge of a canyon, between the high mountains of Michoacán state and the lower grounds of Tierra Caliente, where usually along the route there are extensive views to the lower valleys and some waterfalls visible next to the road in rainy season. This road has a particular image where you see pine forest next to your route, but a desert valley in the bottom, giving different tones of colors especially during sunsets.

The road zigzags in a series of endless curves not recommended for those who suffers dizziness. The highest point of the road is located near San José de la Cumbre at 2.930 masl and lowest to Paso Ancho 980 masl detouring to Tzitzio towards Tierra Caliente.
